Winemaker's Notes:

Abtsberg vineyard give superb quality grapes that are fermented with natural yeasts in traditional large old oak casks. The result is an off-dry wine that embodies all the characteristics of classic Maximin GrĂ¼nhaus: perfectly balanced peach and apricot fruit, with delicate spicy mineral flavors and a lingering finish. This wine has great ageing potential

The Abtsberg Superior is a perfect match for all kinds of seafood, poultry and many dishes of the Asian cuisine.

My Notes:

About Maximin Grunhauser:

First documented in 966 A.D. the von Schubert estate is not only one of the oldest but also one of the best. They are sole owners (Monopole) of the 3 vineyards (Abtsberg, Bruderberg and Herrenberg) that the estates wines are coming from. Since 1982, Dr. Carl von Schubert manages the estate according to the motto: "As much handling as necessary, but as little as possible", putting him and his wines worldwide in the top class.
